The project is a completely new airport with an 11-gate passenger terminal, air traffic control tower, control center and complementary buildings. The estimated cost is $ 380 million (US). The overall design includes all the infrastructure and buildings for a fully functional airport. The aerodrome is made up of a runway and a parallel taxiway of 4,000 meters in length, a parking platform for aircraft with an initial capacity for 11 parking spaces and with the possibility of expanding doors and parking. The airport will have capacity for national and international aircraft. The Passenger Terminal will consist of a multilevel structure of 40,000 m2 with capacity for future door extensions.

Our team received initial drawings and specifications. The services provided included a detailed review of the scheduling of all buildings to meet the latest criteria and codes from the IATA, FAA and local Peruvian aviation. SUMAC was also responsible for local building code verification and component verification and LEED certification compliance for the project. In turn we develop the initial scope drawings in BIM / Revit to develop models and provide accurate quantity takeoffs (QTO) for cost evaluation. Value Engineering service was provided to develop cost saving recommendations
